ABN AMRO’s bad UI design.

Take your time and find the error message displayed in the two screen shots. These are from ABN AMRO bank.

It took me fifteen precious minutes before a friend letting me know what went wrong. He had in turn called the banks help desk. The help desk latter let him know where to look for elusive error messages.
This user interface design violates the most basic principal of design, which is principle of least astonishment . The error message is not getting displayed, where I am expecting it to appear and it is displayed on a colour strip that is a part of logo.

    I shared this on my blog and 11 of my friends have already read it! I enjoyed your blog. I was doing crossfit on Thursday when I discovered your blog. Some nice points there.

    To think, I was confused a minute ago. Keep up the cool quality writing, it is rare to see a nice write up like this one these days. I am impressed, I have to say. Thank you! You have a good head on your shoulders.
